Intellectual Property Infringement Rules for Ads

Copyright

Copyright is a legal right that protects original works of authorship (e.g., music, videos, etc.). Generally, copyright protects an original expression of an idea (e.g., the specific way a video or music is expressed or created) but does not protect underlying ideas or facts.


The use of copyrighted content of others without proper authorization or legally valid reason may constitute an infringement. At the same time, not all unauthorized uses of copyrighted content constitute an infringement. Exceptions to copyright infringement, such as the fair use doctrine or other applicable laws, allow use of copyrighted work under certain circumstances. 


If you believe someone is infringing your copyright in Ads content, contacting the user directly may resolve your complaint more quickly and you may also file a Copyright Infringement Report to us.  In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) or similar laws as may be applicable in other countries, we only have legal liability to deal with copyright complaints from copyright owners or someone authorized to report on their behalf. If you aren't the copyright owner or an authorized representative, we won't be able to process your report here. You may return to file a report for non-right holders.


Before submitting a notification, please be aware that intentionally submitting a misleading or fraudulent report may lead to liability for damages under section 512(f) of the DMCA or similar laws as may be applicable in other countries.

Trademark

A trademark is a word, symbol, slogan, design, or combination of any of the foregoing that identifies the source of a product or service and distinguishes it from other products or services.


The use of trademark of others without proper authorization or legally valid reason may constitute an infringement. At the same time, the use of another’s trademark for purposes of accurately referencing, lawfully commenting, criticizing, parodying, or reviewing the trademark owner’s products or services, or for purposes of comparing them to other products or services, where the mark is not used to designate the user’s own goods or services or those of a third party, is generally not considered a violation of our policies.


If you believe someone is infringing your trademark right in Ads content, contacting the user directly may resolve your complaint more quickly and you may also file a Trademark Infringement Report to us. According to rules and policies under trademark law as may be applicable in some countries, we only have legal liability to deal with trademark complaints from trademark owners or someone authorized to report on their behalf. If you aren't the trademark owner or an authorized representative, we won't be able to process your report here. You may return to file a report for non-right holders.


Before submitting a notification, please be aware that intentionally submitting a misleading or fraudulent report may lead to liability for damages under laws as may be applicable in some countries.
